Fehér isten (White God) (2014)


“White God” (original title: “Fehér isten”) is a Hungarian drama film directed by . The film follows the story of a young girl named Lili who is forced to give up her beloved dog, Hagen, by her father. Abandoned on the streets of Budapest, Hagen becomes a stray dog and is forced to learn how to survive in a hostile and violent environment.

As Hagen struggles to survive, he becomes more and more aggressive towards humans, leading a group of stray dogs in a rebellion against their human oppressors. The situation quickly escalates, leading to a violent and bloody climax.

“White God” explores themes of loyalty, trust, and the complex relationship between humans and animals. It also serves as a metaphor for issues of social injustice, as the dogs in the film represent an underclass of society that is oppressed and exploited by those in power.

Critics praised “White God” for its powerful message, stunning visuals, and innovative use of animal actors. “White God” won the Un Certain Regard Award at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, and was Hungary's official entry for the Best Foreign Language Film category at the 87th Academy Awards.
